A Peterborough man faces several charges, including impaired driving, after allegedly swerving his vehicle directly at a marked police cruiser last week.
The Peterborough Police Service said that in the early morning hours of Friday, Nov. 9, they received a call from a concerned citizen about a possible impaired driver.
Officers located a vehicle matching the witness’ description in the city’s west end.
“The suspect vehicle allegedly veered into the police officer’s lane, forcing the officer to take evasive driving actions to avoid a collision,” police stated Friday.
Police managed to get the vehicle to stop, and the driver was arrested.
Mitchel Crossman, 27, of Parkhill Road West was charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, driving while ability impaired and driving with a blood-alcohol concentration above 0.08.
He is scheduled for a court appearance in Peterborough on Nov. 29.
